A scuffle between Kevin Seraphin and Marcus Camby highlighted a flat night at the Verizon Center, where the Wizards just didn't have it -- on either end -- against Portland. Washington lost, 110-99.
WASHINGTON — Hey! It's our quick-hit Trail Blazers vs. Wizards recap. Take a moment to catch up on the news, notes and must-see from last night's Wizards action -- good and bad -- with 'Postive Pixels, Wicked Pixels.' It's your morning-after Wizards hangover cure.
• Nobody puts Kevin Seraphin in the corner. Blazers center Marcus Camby received a flagrant 2 foul and was ejected from the game for shoving the Wizards center (video below). It was good to see Seraphin stand up for himself, but afterward he said he didn't really get what happened.
"I don't really know why he got mad because I just boxed him out, you know? Then he just pushed me like that and I can't let people push me like that. ... I stood up to tell him what's up."
"Maybe he tried to punk somebody. But if he wanted to punk somebody, that was not here. That was not in Washington."
• John Wall raises up. Now accepting far-fetched explanations for why he always dunks lefty.
It's the weekend so we're going all-video here. There was plenty to choose from.
• Marcus Camby was ejected for being too rough! I'm including this because being rough is not a good example to set for the kids watching.
Here's what Camby had to say after the game:
"Lot of frustration of losing, and the fact that I felt he had his forearm on my throat so I was just trying to get some space between me and him."
"That wasn't the intention. I hate coming out of the ballgames and being forced to get ejected. ... I felt embarrassed, me being the captain I wanted to be out there for my team in the second half."
"I always said growing up I wish the NBA was like hockey, you know, and let two guys go out there and fight. It would eliminate a lot of the tough guys you think are tough guys in the NBA."
• JaVale McGee was trying to do something here. I'm just not sure what it was.
